If we hit the UINT_MAX limit of bio->bi_iter.bi_size and so we are anyway
not merging this page in this bio, then it make sense to make same_page
also as false before returning.

Without this patch, we hit below WARNING in iomap.
This mostly happens with very large memory system and / or after tweaking
vm dirty threshold params to delay writeback of dirty data.
